Clearly it's anti-American to sell medicines to Americans at affordable 

I fail to understand the logic

My favorite quote is from industry PR consultant Kassy Perry: "Reason
prevails in CA. #AB463 fails. Anti-American efforts for #price controls

So, the industry thinks it is "anti-american" to ask what they actually
spend on R&D for a drug.
